Access to starting point:
A) First, we drive to Horjul (to here from Dobrova at Ljubljana or Vrhnika), and then we continue driving towards Vrzdenec, Šentjošt and Gorenja vas. At Vrzdenec the road starts ascending steeper, and then a little further it brings us to hairpin turn, in the middle of which road branches off to the left towards Šentjošt and Smrečje. We continue right on the main road, and it soon brings us on a small saddle, at the end of which road branches off to the right towards the village Samotorica. We continue straight, and the road starts steeply descending and after a short descent it brings us to a hamlet Ljubljanica (bottom part of Butajnova), where we come to the next crossroad. We continue left in the direction of Gorenja vas and we follow the road to Suhi Dol, where we park on an appropriate place.
B) We drive to Polhov Gradec, and then we continue driving towards Gorenja vas. The road towards Gorenja vas we follow to the settlement Suhi Dol, where on the mountain pass, we park on an appropriate place.
C) We drive into the valley Poljanska dolina, more precisely to a roundabout in Gorenja vas, from where we continue towards Lučine and Vrhnika. At the crossroads, we follow an ascending asphalt road in the direction of Horjul and Vrhnika, soon after the settlements Lučine and Dolge Njive we get to the settlement Suhi Dol, where on the mountain pass, we park on an appropriate place.
Path description:
From the mountain pass on Suhi Dol we go on an asphalt road in the direction of Smrečje and Goli Vrh, where we go at first past few more houses, and then by the edge of the pasture we ascend in the forest. Next follows few minutes of ascent on the road, and then at the information board, signs for the foundations of guard tower (temelji stražnega stolpa) point us to the left on a footpath which ascends through the forest. On the nearby clearing, the path flattens and for some time vanishes, and on the other side of the clearing we continue on a beaten and marked path, which ascends diagonally towards the right and soon turns to the left. At the smaller crossing, we go once again left, where also an arrow points us to, and after few 10 strides of additional walking, we gor right towards the foundations of guard tower, to which we get into a minute of additional walking.
